    #57: Why Affirmations Don't Work (and What To Do Instead)

    Have you ever Googled "self-love affirmations" hoping that they'll help you with self-love, but almost feeling like they... didn't work?

In this episode, Mary explains the psychology behind why affirmations don't work and what you can do instead that will really help you in your self-love journey.

    Note: if affirmations work for you, then that's great! Do what's best for you. But try this other practice too and see how you feel. :)

Fresh, inspiring!

Mary,
I’ve been listening to your podcasts and following your IG for several months now and your message has been a game changer for me. I pre-ordered your book and immediately started working on it when it arrived...wow! Your book and podcasts are another tool in my wellness toolbox and I am very thankful to see women like you in this world.
Keep up the great work, girl!

A Truly Amazing Resource for the Next Phase of My Self-Love Journey

To think that it’s 2021 and I’m 4 years into deep work around my self-love journey...it’s kind of surreal. I found Mary’s account on Instagram earlier this year and I immediately felt a connection to her. I too am a big proponent to self-love, and that I what I teach to my coaching clients but I am now ready to really explore loving my body too—and then eventually teaching that to others. As a 26 year old woman, it is beyond inspiring to hear Mary’s message, success, and overall enthusiasm as an entrepreneur as another young woman. I have felt so isolated for so long being a young woman in this space, and I don’t as much anymore because of Mary. Thank you so much for all that you do. I bought your book immediately after finding you and I can’t wait to dive into it. I also want to go to your Costa Rica Retreat if I can make some arrangements on the financial side of my life. I love you already girl!! Thank you for furthering my journey through your message!!
